It is essential that you advise us of your UK address, telephone and email details for the two weeks period prior to your course commencing in case we need to advise you of any changes. The Academy does not offer refunds for accommodation or travel costs associated with any courses.
Students who require a visa to enter the UK must contact the British Embassy in their own country and make prior arrangements before booking any course. The Art Academy is not permitted to sponsor any visas.
Course participants are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner, and to recognise that other participants also require support and assistance. If a participant becomes persistently disruptive, we reserve the right to issue a verbal warning, and if this does not resolve the situation, the participant may be asked to leave the course.
All classes are taught in English. Applicants for diploma courses whose first language is not English should note that they are required to be moderately proficient in written and spoken English, and be able to participate in group discussions and presentations in English. Participants on short courses should have a working knowledge of English.
Courses often run on Bank Holiday Mondays – please check the course document carefully.
On completion of your course and having attended the minimum number of hours required, the Art Academy may provide you with a Certificate of Attendance if requested to do so.

From time to time, we may photograph our evening, weekend and short course classes for use in marketing and promotional material (including on our website and social media channels). We’ll always get in touch with you before the class to let you know that a photographer will be present, and you’ll be asked for your permission to have your photo taken and used.
